Pandaform allows users to create, track and process forms in an easy to use and elegant manner. This enables anyone to publish information about their product and include the ability to place orders and process payments. Pandaform also uses a simple customer relationship management module to keep track of customer form submissions, and is capable of storing that data for use later, such as sending forms to customers with information they have already entered in the past pre-filled. Using the mail merge feature, users can generate receipts based on completed forms which include the customer’s information along with a confirmation of their order.
Launched in June 2010, by Oursky, Pandaform is still in its beta stage, and as such changes and new features can be expected; however, even given its relatively short time on the market, Pandaform seems to have incorporated all the basic functions needed for businesses to generate and publish custom forms and track and maintain them. Pandaform is used today as a solution that enables small businesses and individuals to easily keep track of and respond to customer requests for information, as well as tracking sales and receiving payments.
Pandaform enables users to create and track forms using a simple, intuitive interface. This saves the company from having to spend time generating their own forms and then having to deal with the receipt and processing of customer requests, which at times could get quite overwhelming. Pandaform aims to simplify the process by providing a single one-stop solution that handles submitted form information automatically, and stores it in a database for use in populating future forms, such as receipts for customer orders.
Pandaform’s homepage is easy to navigate and well laid out, with information easily accessible for new users. On the front page is a very informative video that gives the user a broad overview of the site’s features and how they will benefit their organization. The design of Pandaform’s homepage is quite well done, and doesn’t encumber the user with unnecessary information. The site also functions with minimal delay between requests, so users can access the information they wish to access without wasting time waiting for long page loads.
In order to register for Pandaform, the user simply clicks the green “Sign up for Free” button on the front page.

Non-Governmental organizations can use Pandaform to solicit donations from its members, as well as for creating forms advertising events and petitions and easily handle their submission.
